Brize Norton 6-1 Hanborough Res

Brize hit Hanborough for 6

Brize Norton FC welcomed Hanborough Reserves to the Brize Recreation ground where Brize were hoping to make it 2 wins out of 2, last weeks win had the confidence flowing and everyone was in high spirits before the game.

CM:Rob Hook
DM: John Oswald
CM: Toby Goodwin
LM: Dan Humm

Brize started the game where they left off last Saturday, bossing the game with every player looking comfortable on the ball. It didn't take long before the chances starting coming, Haydn Parker had a couple of one on ones saved by the keeper and our very own box to box midfielder Toby Goodwin was getting into lots of good positions and was unlucky not to put Brize ahead on a number of occasions.
30 minutes had passed with Hanborough trying to get close to Steve Marshall's goal only for the solid back 3 to usher them away, until a fluke rocked the Brize boat, John Oswald tackled the Hanborough forward but the ball deflected off his foot and flew into the top corner, giving Marshall no chance. If this had happened last season, Brize would of collapsed and let in a few more quick fire goals but no, not this year. Brize bounced straight back with some superb jinxing from Jake Farrugia, dribbling around the Hanborough defence to pull the ball back to Haydn Parker who calmly side footed into the net. 1-1.
Minutes later Dan Leverton was fouled just inside the Hanborough half, John Oswald took a brilliant freekick to find Rob Hook and he looped his header over the keeper, a carbon copy of his goal in pre season.
Half time and Brize had a deserved lead 2-1.

After getting drenched during the half time talk, Brize came out of the blocks quickly, within a minute of the restart a good ball forward by Oswald found Toby Goodwin and Haydn Parker on the edge of the area, a neat one two between them gave Haydn a bit of space to get the ball out of his feet and curl/chip the keeper right into the top corner of the net, an early contender for goal of the season. 4 goals in 2 games now for Haydn Parker.
Another goal for Brize soon followed, after a cleared corner found its way back to Jon White AKA Assist king, he whipped a lovely cross into Dan Humm who headed into the net from 6 yards. 2 in 2 for him.

Fair play to Hanborough their heads didn't drop and kept battling but they couldn't get to grips with Brize's quick passing.

Rob Hook after 60 minutes brought on 3 quick subs, Frist Haydn Parker on a hat trick came off for Adam Davis, then Jake Farrugia and John Oswald came off for Gezz Morgan and Scott Bamford.

All 3 subs made got straight into the action and were making a difference, Scott Bamford was lively, getting stuck in giving their midfield no time on the ball. Adam Davis was being a pest up front and closing down everything, it paid off as he closed down the keeper, his clearance hit Adam, all he had to now was attempt to finish past keeper or square to Gezz Morgan which he did who then had the easiest finish of his career, but knowing Gezz there was still a possibility this could go over. 5-1.
Brize weren't finished there, and still looking for 6th, Rob Hook had a shot go wide, Adam Davis had a superb header saved.
Steve Marshall as he does so well, was looking to catch the opposition out with his long accurate half volley's up field, this time he found Adam In acres of space in behind the Hanborough defence, from the side of the penalty area he squared ball into the box, Scott got his legs tangled but worked out well as ball fell to Gezz Morgan who had another easy finish.

Another hard decision after the game, who gets the MOM award? Like last week any of 11 could of got it, Haydn for his goals, Jake for his Jinxing runs, Toby, Rob And Oswald for dominating the midfield, White and Humm causing trouble on the wings, the 3 subs for their impact or the back 3 who once again were superb. Much to his pleasure we eventually decided on the MOM award going to Dan Leverton for his solid performance.

Superb game for Brize Norton FC against a strong team, 2 wins from 2 games, 9 goals scored,confidence sky high.

Up next Charlbury Reserves...
